Senator Elizabeth Warren appeared on CBS This Morning today (video below). The Free Beacon headlines its account of the interview “Elizabeth Warren won’t answer any questions in CBS interview.” She would prefer not to. Nothing unusual in that.
The questions of interest to me in this interview relate to (1) her failure so far to express a preference for Sanders or Clinton in the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination and (2) her refusal to comment on whether Clinton should release the transcripts of her speeches to the big bad wolves of Wall Street. Why would Mistress Warren be so coy in response to these questions?
Her refusal to answer these questions is probably overdetermined, but I have a guess based on a simple explanation. I think her heart belongs to Bernie; I think her ardent supporters’ hearts belong to Bernie. But Bernie is for losers and Warren is a rather cynical winner.
